Brazilian Wax with Mr. Bongo
Friday 22 November 2019
Fast-becoming a familiar fixture of the UK global-music scene, the last two years have seen the Leeds-based duo, Joe Osborne and Henry Weekes, cutting their teeth playing alongside the likes of Mafalda, Global Roots (aka Thris Tian), DJ Tahira, Tim Garcia, Nubya Garcia, Patrick Forge and Emma-Jean Thackray. Expect everything from Afro-Brazilian rhythms to modern São Paulo electronics, with ample disco and rare groove to make you move.
Joining Brazilian Wax this time is the global-music heavyweights, Mr Bongo.
Now in their 30th year of existence, the Bongo team are incomparable in their dedication to spreading music from every corner of the globe, specialising in Latin sounds and, in particular, the musical output of Brazil. While the Mr. Bongo record label is home to the likes of Jorge Ben and Seu Jorge, their “Brazil 45’s” reissue collection have made accessible endless crate-diggers’ gems – among them Evinha’s Que Bandeira, Marcos Valle’s Estrelar and Antonio Carlos & Jocafi’s Simbarerê. Having had shops in London and Japan, they are now Brighton-based and throw legendary dances alongside the likes of Horse Meat Disco, Hunnee, Habibi Funk, Auntie Flo and Young Marco. Guaranteed to bring mind-bending sounds and ample unknown floor-fillers, we cannot wait to have them down.
